    Review your sex toys at Lovehoney

    Lovehoney has the largest database of sex toy and lingerie reviews anywhere online, and it's all thanks to you brilliant sex toy testers! The toys you road-test and the feedback you send us is absolutely invaluable and a huge help to new (and longstanding) customers.

    I'm sure you remember your first online sex toy or lingerie purchase. It can be a daunting experience! Reviews are great for dispelling concerns, adding information and assisting sex toy newbies in making the best decisions when shopping with us.

    To say "thank you" for your diligent product testing, we run a regular Review of the Month competition for written reviews where you can win a £100 Lovehoney Voucher, or 2,000 Oh! Points to spend or save.

    The general feedback from customers is that you love reading reviews as it really helps in finding the perfect product, however lots of you tell us you really like the couple of video reviews we have on the site.

    Well, this got us thinking...

    We're very excited to announce that we will now be accepting video reviews of your Lovehoney purchases and they'll be included in our Review of the Month competition so you still have the chance to get your hands on some amazing Lovehoney prizes.

    Read on to learn about our Review Guidelines, and how to submit your review.



    To give you an idea of what we're looking for, we've asked a couple of our lovely staff (including me!) to have a go at reviewing a product following the guidelines above.

    Get involved and start recording your video analysis, or comment on this blog to let us know what you think!

      Great idea. Hope you get lots of video reviews submitted though must admit I think I'd be too shy to submit one myself :-\
    • wildflower: August 21, 2014 15:20
      Good idea for those brave enough to show their face! Personally I'd rather be totally anonymous :)

      What a fantastic idea for the brave ones! I would also rather stay anonymous :)
    • Khaleesi: August 24, 2014 18:49
      I can't decide! I might film one and then wait a couple of days before uploading it...
    • Emily: August 25, 2014 17:06
      Why does your face have to be in it? I'm a little confused. Surely just seeing hands and the toy wouldn't detract from the review...

      Hi Emily
      Thanks for your comment.
      We want to see your faces because it makes the whole review more personable and friendly. It also encourages the idea that none of us should be embarrassed that we use sex toys.
      However, we understand that submitting a video review isn't for everyone, which is why we are still actively encouraging written reviews, just the same as before. Video reviewing is entirely optional - not compulsory! :)
      Thanks again!
